  4. Your blog has an image that infringes copyright. This is a serious problem and I request you change the information and give the right back to the original artist.

    The photo, Tree of Life is NOT BY Roman Shatsky. It’s made by my good friend, a Korean photographer named Baki.

    You can check the evidence on his website: http://www.a-apollon.com

    I’ll inform about this to the original artist right away.
